You know your a Sideline Daddy when….

 You abuse the referees: This is one area where Sideline Daddies really act a fool! Regardless of the fact that without them you have no game, Sideline Daddies treat these volunteers like the scum of the earth.

Regardless of the fact that their kids are not pros in the NFL, NHL, NBA, or MLB  parents scream at, cuss out and on occasion threaten to “beat the referee’s ass after the game.”  I feel that this has 3 major impacts on our kids. First it teaches them to make excuses rather than to deal with “the call or no call.”  It shows the youth that they shouldn’t respect authority. The game is ruled by the refs so bottom line they need to be respected.  Finally the refs are human, if you don’t think its easier for them to see more stuff on your players team after you cuss and threaten them then your naive.

At the end of the day a ref has never reversed a call because of the parents complaining so leave them alone. Don’t be a Sideline Daddy!

You talk about the shoulda, woulda, coulda’s about your sports career.  Every practice, game, family team meeting Sideline Daddies make sure that we all know he used to play, but some excuse stopped him from becoming a professional athlete,

When your embarrassed by your player performance or the score! Ooh the excuses that come out of Sideline Daddies mouths when their player is not good or struggling at sports. Sideline Daddy shows no shame in talking about “what their player should have done.” Have you ever noticed how fast they get to the car?

Don’t be a Sideline Daddy!

Push your kids to hard: The youth may have the goal to make the pros but until they get older let them relax.  Not only does pushing them too hard take the fun out of sports, it can also be dangerous to your player if you don’t know what you’re doing.

The NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB only accept men so your boys have plenty of time to have fun playing sports. Don’t be a Sideline Daddy!
